Through understated, intimate looks at the complications of young adult life, singer-songwriter Eddie Johnston, better known as Lontalius, provides a balm for the broken-hearted.
In the first few minutes of his third album, Someone Will Be There For You, there is a line that best describes the effect this 24-year-old’s words have: “I’ll find a record now/to make sense of it all somehow.”
Renowned for his delicate sense of melancholy, Lontalius has won over audiences around the world, collaborating with the likes of Grammy Award-winning producer Om’Mas Keith (Frank Ocean, Erykah Badu) and performing alongside such artists as Perfume Genius, Death Cab For Cutie, and Eden, as well as recent local appearances at Laneway and Auckland Pride Festival.
With more than 33 million streams on Spotify of his most popular song ‘Sleep Thru Ur Alarms’, Lontalius has demonstrated why he’s one of New Zealand’s most exciting musical talents. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience live an artist with an astonishing set of skills and the ability to write a song that will stay with you for days.
